5 Astrology Apps to Diversify Your Roster This Aries Season

by Alyx Carolus

As we continue trudging through an ongoing pandemic and it seems that now more than ever people are turning to alternative or new age therapies to get through this time. Whether you’re buying more crystals, creating spaces to meditate or using esoteric practices to make it through the lockdown, we all need practices to help us cope with the instability of this global crisis. Astrology isn’t going anywhere and while it’s constantly seen as a “niche” offering, the business of the stars and planets is a profitable one. Last year we wrote about astrology apps you need to know about and this year, there are a few more notable ones to add to your devices. 

 

Astrology In the Palm of Your Hand

Surely, the pandemic has been a stressful, life changing and frustrating time period. It comes as no surprise that people are using astrology to navigate their lives. According to this 2021 British Vogue article, “People seek information to make sense of these events, often finding relief in abstract messaging and big, albeit unquantifiable, ideas about faith, love and the future, instead of cold scientific facts.”

Unfortunately, the world feels unreal and we don’t have the answers at all. All around the world, we’re seeing the start of vaccine rollouts but where does that leave our new normal, our careers and love lives? Astrology can provide some direction and offer guidelines to those who need it. This 2019 The Cut article explains, “Astrology was really just an early attempt to assign order, rhythm, and meaning to our chaotic and unpredictable work: an early form of scientific theory.”

Here’s a Quick Look at 5 Astrology Apps Worth Exploring This Season:

1. Nebula: Horoscope and Astrology

There’s a dedicated learning center on the app that shares information about astrology, from transits to asteroids and how polarity and modalities impact the signs. 

The app also scans your palm print along with a guide to understanding the basics of palmistry. It’s easy to use and if you get the Premium subscription you get access to all this without ads. You can also speak to astrologers online but that’s at an additional cost. (Available on iOS and Android)
